Done Done Done!

Update: I put a survey on the right to get some advice on what you want to see on my blogs. Please vote if you follow my blog :) always feel free to send me a note to suggest other content too!
Five minutes ago I submitted my last b-school application! I can proudly say that I am officially done with this stressful and ever-lasting process! Hurray!!!!

Outside of the window, the scary storm has stopped (well, scary by LA standard...) and the sun came out! What a great day!

Now I can start thinking about all the things I want to do but put on hold for the past 6 month. I already have 3 trips lined up for the next two months. Snowboarding, Kellogg's DAK and a birthday trip my bf planned for me last year! Just hope I have enough vacations to cover all those! And here are a few things that are on my to-do list.

1. Decide whether to run the 10k or the half-marathon in March and train for it! Finally getting back in my running routine and getting my muscles and immune system back!

2. Schedule hang-out times with my dear friends who have been ignored by me for awhile. Already have several events lined up! can't wait to catch up!

3. Read the long list of books that I have been wanting to read! Will write a seperate post on that.

4. Explore LA with bf and spend as much time with him as possible. Despite having lived here for so many years, I still have so many things that I haven't done! Griffith park observatory, wine tasting in Malibu, hiking on Channel islands, just to name a few. Let alone all the great restaurants and hole in the wall eateries that I haven't experienced. I want to do all these things with my dearest bf who I will definitely miss a lot while away for school.

5. Write blog posts on my advice on b-school applications. I want to share my experiences and lessons learned and help you, my dear readers, to succeed in your process. So send me suggestions on what you want to see on this blog.

6. Basically live life to the fullest! :)


  1. DreamChaser--Congrats again on your first acceptance. Good luck with applications the rest of the way!

  2. Good luck!! Do everything you can before the insanity of actual SCHOOL begins :).

  3. Good luck! I don't think I realized you were in too...just submitted HBS and now all I have left is Columbia and this extra essay for my NYU app (I'm a JD/MBA candidate).

    Might I suggest adding the Culver City Artwalk to your list of LA to do's? It's one of my faves.

  4. hi this1girl,

    Thanks for the well wishes and good luck on your apps too! oh and thanks for the suggestion! :)

    btw, there is a LA Gmatclub meet-up tomorrow night (Wednesday), don't know if you know the gmatclub forum, but should be fun to meet other mba applicants in LA. contact me for details if you want to come :) I will be there!

  5. hi Elizabeth,

    thanks for the advice, I totally agree :)
    and keep writing on your blog, your story is very interesting and definitely helpful for lots of partners out there!

  6. I'm a bit late, but congrats! It feels amazing, doesn't it?? Also, congrats on the admit to Kellogg!

    Your to do list is almost exactly the same as mine - nice to see I'm not the only one who put off EVERYTHING during app season! Enjoy your freedom :o)

  7. Congrats! Best of luck with all your apps. Hope you've been catching up on some of your To-Do list items. Hope to hear good news from you soon.
